C's Mom writes "I thought I'd send a few pics your way of our gym in the basement. Still not finished, but the girls are enjoying it just the same. "
M. can't reach the rings on her own yet, but is happy to hang there for quite some time if she's lifted up."
I've shared this on the blog because home gym's are not something I have ever considered through the "Montessori" lens. (My experience with gym's is lots of sweaty adults working out on strange looking contraptions. The only place for children was in the "playroom" - usually a big room full of toys and a caregiver. ) However, C's parents have shown me that with some careful thought and consideration for the developmental needs of their children, a home gym can be a place for the entire family.
